Work Bench

The plan was to set out to build this basic work bench.
First, I precut all the pieces and laid them out.

Next, I clamped the pieces, checked for square, drilled pilot holes and attached with 1/4" carriage bolts.

Next was to install brackets that I was going to use to enhance the functionality of the bench, using this image of a Roll-Around Workbench as a guide.

Next I installed the cross pieces and bolted them in.

Next came the base shelf and casters (two stationary and two swivel with locking mechanism).

Pinned the tabletop down with a pneumatic nailer.

Installed the end shelf so the table saw was flush with the tabletop, and viola!
